Today's theme is no theme, because there were so many words with which to contend. So, instead, I went random.
Three Word Wednesday's words are "dainty, tantalize and haunting," We Write Poems' words are a 10-Word Wordle using words from Gordon Lightfoot's Don Quixote. The March Challenge's word is 'exploration' in honor of the birth of Amerigo Vespucci, who (in other words) came into the world in 1454.
The first poem is a 5/7/5 Haiku, the second is - well, I don't know but it has words and it rhymes - and the third is a double Wreathed Sestet.

Curiosity Doesn’t Always Have to End in a Bad Way for Cats or Writers
“Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go.” ~E.L. Doctorow
gets us to explore new words
as if we were cats.

O Wicked Little Sirens
Dainty mini pastries
sit in a sweet box on
my kitchen counter top.
They know my name and they
tantalize me. Haunting.
I eat them all nonstop.

Prophesy in Dreams
I dreamt I saw a saddlebag,
and this strange saddlebag was filled
with a Windmills' Tavern bar rag,
a flag, a book on hawks, distilled
ocean water (chilled) - and a tag
in the bag said, “The Prophet’s Guild.”
A drunkard from the tavern showed
out of the blue (the code of dreams)
and said, “It seems this would but bode
quite well.” Then he strode away. Schemes
of themes get tarnished on the road
when owed to the valley of dreams.
